Well, after 6 weeks away…..we decided to come home over the weekend.
If you have been following my blog since the beginning you may remember that my mom has been battling cancer since 2008. She has dealt with it spreading to the lungs and then the brain back in 2010…..she had surgery the week Harry was born and STILL made it to the hospital for his birth. She is amazing to say the least. Well, after surgeries, radiation, chemo, etc. she has finally decided that she has done all she can do to fight this. So, she is using her time to spend with family and friends and enjoy life. She really is a true inspiration and the weeks I spent in Virginia with her were precious…..and we’ll likely go back as much as we can (and as much as my parents will allow as it was quite ”energetic” around the house with my two kiddos in tow) in the months ahead.
Thanks to all of you who flooded my inbox with emails and words of support. Even when I didn’t have the time to personally respond, I appreciated your words and thought more than you know. Please bear with me as I get myself back up to speed here at home. Stacks of mail, appointments with my web designer, overdue trips to the design center for VERY patient clients, etc. and I am feeling slightly overwhelmed. I am hoping that I’ll be back to “normal” by the weekend and will start real blogging again.
Until then, I am going to try to list some new fabrics I got in and focus on the behind the scenes of my business as I am in the middle of changing some things around here. And, of course, I plan enjoy these last weeks of summer with my kiddos who are number one in my book!
I’ll be back soon!
